Serena Williams has confirmed she’s now officially engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
The two lovebirds were recently spotted at some jewelry stores, looking for special diamond rings.
A Wednesday report from Sun-Times said the tennis player “is madly in love with him,” adding that “the relationship is heating up.”
Now that we’ve confirmed rumors can be true sometimes, Serena’s fans are super excited with the news.
Nonetheless, most of her fans will surely celebrate this “achievement”, for the fact that he’s not Drake – someone that has taken upon himself the image of a “heartbreaker”.

“So many people would flip but if the couple at some point announced they were engaged I’d be happy,” tweeted one fan after the news first broke out. “They’re so cute!”
The 35-year-old is believed to have met her heartthrob during a luncheon in far away Italy.
“The Sexiest Tennis Player Alive,” according to Glamour Magazine’s January 2017 issue, has previous dated a few men like Drake, Common and Grigor Dimitrov. However, getting married to a man who’s 2 years younger is a “real blessing”.
“#Serena Williams being named THE Sexiest Woman Alive makes her boyfriend the luckiest Man Alive?” a fan joked after the tennis player was recognized by Glamour.

Meanwhile, this is a short poem written by Serena to celebrate her engagement: “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own ‘charming.’ Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
The “lucky man” responded to Serena’s tweet through his Reddit account with “kn0thing…And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
Her relationship with the 33-year-old Ohanian has been kept a secret but an insider reveals: “They laugh non-stop and that really fuels their relationship.
“They are on the same page in life and are excited to start something great with each other.”
In a recent interview, the famous tennis player talked about wanting to have a baby, but added that she’s “too young”.
She said: “I definitely want to have kids one day. That’s something I’ve always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I’m like, ‘I’m too young!'”
Congratulations to you and your new man, Serena.
